Mayor Tong is a minor antagonist from the series Avatar: The Last Airbender. He is the mayor of Chin Village. Due to his arrogance and his hatred of the Avatar and his twisted justice principles which gave him severe advantages over his defendants, Mayor Tong could count as a villain. He worships Chin the Conqueror as the hero of his city.
Mayor Tong is largely arrogant and tends to flaunt the evidence. He exercises a strange form of justice that put his defendant at a severe disadvantages, in which he acted as the court, jury, and judge at once.
Mayor Tong is rather tall, similar to the Gan Jin elder. He has black hair and a thin moustache.
Mayor Tong makes his first appearance when the townspeople celebrate Avatar Day. Aang believes that he and his previous avatars would be honoured, but Tong's true colours are revealed when someone torches the floats, which are merely effigies. Though Katara defends the Avatars by putting the fire out with her waterbending and Team Avatar reasons that the Avatars help, not hurt, Aang is jailed. Katara and Sokka try to defend him by finding evidence, but their attempts are foiled when Tong, due to his twisted justice principles, brushes it aside.
Mayor Tong then pronounces Aang guilty, but when the Fire Nation invades, he quickly changes the sentencing to community service. When Aang defeates the Fire Nation, the redeemed Mayor is convinced to change the purpose of Avatar Day: to honour Avatars rather than defaming them.
- Mayor Tong is the first character to demonize the Avatar for bad reasons.
